Heathcliff, it’s me, I’m Cathy I’ve come home, I’m so cold Let me in through your window
Just one of many quotable lines from the debut Kate Bush single Wuthering Heights (1978). Taken from her album The Kick Inside (1978), the song was a UK number one for 4 weeks and a smash hit around Europe. You might also be interested to see my favourite quote from the novel, a line from the 1939 film or a reference to the book in An American Werewolf in London.
Has there been a song that you were familiar with and then heard another artist’s take on it and been completely blown away? Including the times you actually liked the initial release? I thought I’d choose my favourites and see what you thought. Are you in agreement with many of the songs? Which ones would you add? As always your comments and suggestions are more than encouraged.
